Junior Julia Cooke knew she had an interest in market research, and this curiosity caused her to pursue an internship with Baltimore Research in Towson, Maryland, which is, according to its website, "a full-service marketing research firm, as well as Baltimore's premier focus group facility." Under the supervision of Ted Donnelly, the Administration Managing Director, Julia has been learning how to interview contacts, transcribe focus group discussions, and perform a variety of other market research tasks. Because of her internship, she continues to be excited about a career in research.

A great big thank you goes out to four Business Communication students who volunteered to help out with the latest Admissions Open House on Saturday, March 12 -- the first day of their Spring Break! The students helped to welcome our visitors and participated in the presentation as well. They are (l to r) Grace Clark, Kaitlyn Rollyson, Julia Cooke and Emma Ragon. The department is grateful for their volunteer spirit and enthusiasm!
Four Business Communication writers have joined forces with the Odyssey Online site as contributing writers who enjoy seeing the fruits of their labor published as part of this social content platform whose intent is to share the voices of the millennials.
Joining Corrin Harris are Emily Rosenthal, Kimberly Hahr and Courtney Hottle, who have been blogging for the site. Their topics are personal, and their advice is grounded in the experiences of college students. They post regularly, sometimes as much as weekly, and their voices join with other young adults, mostly between the ages of 18-34, who choose their own topics and write about what matters to them.
Congratulations to these writers who love the worlds of social media and content production. Bright futures with lots of possibilities lie ahead!
